Dundee United’s Manchester United loanee Dylan Levitt has won the approval of Welsh fans after a positive 10th cap for his international team.
The 20-year-old midfielder played 90 minutes in a 0-0 friendly draw with Finland on Wednesday. While the game was not a competitive fixture, Levitt stood out in midfield. The Manchester United loanee was up against players like Rangers’ Glen Kamara and did not look out of place.
With Aaron Ramsey withdrawing through injury, a starting spot opened up in Wales manager Rob Page’s midfield, and Dundee United’s new signing grasped the chance with both hands. Levitt joined Thomas Courts’ Dundee United squad on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.
World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia come next for Levitt and Wales, fans clearly impressed by what the Dundee United and Manchester United midfielder produced.
Thought Johnson, Wilson, Levitt and especially, Smith were super tonight. Best we could have wished for from a friendly 4 days before a crucial WC qualifier #FINWAL

Stand out players:
Brennan Johnson – looked dangerous and won a penalty.
Dylan Levitt – his range of passing was fantastic and pulled the strings.
Matt Smith – Extremely bright, almost scored and put in some good deliveries.

Watching Wales and Levitt has a cigar out in the middle of the park. Expecting him to really stand out in games where we’ll enjoy more possession.

Also credit Levitt tonight. He looked like a man tonight not a boy. Saw what the fuss might be about. Still not having Tyler Roberts though.

Levitt absolutely strolling this game for Wales

Hugely impressed with Smith and Levitt tonight. Boyz II Men, not the US RnB band, but grown up so much since playing men's football. Brennan and Colwill look absolute ballers. So much promise all over the pitch. And more importantly – strength in depth.
